Star Wars: Rebellion
If you are looking for an epic Star Wars in a box experience you may as well just hit add to cart right now. Star Wars Rebellion is a grand zoomed out game of cat and mouse across the galaxy. One team will take control of the smaller and weaker Rebel Alliance. Their job is to evade the Empire while lobbying other planets to join the revolt. You are outmatched by a well sourced, funded and evil Imperial Empire, so causing a galaxy wide revolt is your only chance!
The Imperial Empire player just has to find the Rebel base and destroy it. With their legends of Stormtroopers and superior numbers in almost everything this should be a walk in the Endorian Forest… right?
The board features a map of the galaxy, with planets and systems that fans of the franchise will recognise and relish. At the start of the game the Rebel player will secretly decide which planet their base will start on. Hoth? Right. I mean it’s got to be Hoth for the classic double bluff? Yet even if your double bluff fails you can up and move before the Empire has time to amass it’s forces and then mouse hunt will start again,
It isn’t just the grand scale that plays out in Rebellion though. Each side has access to leaders, classic characters from the saga that will help sway the battle by taking on secret missions, and living out classic moments from the original trilogy or making new ones completely.
Featuring over 150 plastic miniatures of the films iconic vehicles this is a game for players and collectors both. Once you have finished your first play you will no doubt want to swap sides and go again! May the force be with you!
